It was a great opportunity for my children to make new friends, see a variety of places in our community and feel comfortable learning/traveling. The staff was wonderful and very caring. My children had a wonderful experience and want to do it again next year. - South County Parent
She loves going to the Y, loves the staff and all her friends. She even learned how to ride a bike at the Y. She is a social person and needs the constant interactions with others. With out the Y she wouldn't have had that available as often as she would like. - San Luis Obispo Parent
